Book readers dating
As I continued to investigate, the movement went even further than the book in some circles.
Many Christians were saying that dating was sinful in and of itself; others were at least feeling as if people who were still dating were less spiritual than those who didn't.
I was told that a movement was arising from a book called I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris.
The premise of the book is that dating is not a good idea, and many people were giving it up.
What is the fruit of your dating for you and for the people that you date? It is mainly about your character growth and how you treat people." "So, you think it is okay to date? "Of course, I do, but it is only okay to date within biblical guidelines, which by the way are not burdensome.
They will save your life and help you to make sure you end up with a good person to marry," I said, chuckling on the inside about how often Christians want a rule.
So, I would have to say that the biblical position on dating has much more to do with the person you are and are becoming than whether or not you date.
"I do not think the Bible gives a 'position' on dating," I said.
"Dating is an activity that people do, and as with a lot of other things, the Bible does not talk about it.
I thought this was the end of it until the same question kept coming up around the country whenever I would speak to singles.
Over and over again, I was asked if dating were an okay thing to do or not.
The biblical position on dating would be to date in a holy way.
